It's hard to believe that another year has come and gone. Seems like just yesterday that 17 little first graders walked into the room with nervouse smiles, aspirations of learning to read, ready to meet new friends and with a natural curiosity of what first grade would be.
Here we are 9 months later, inches taller, TONS smarter and with so many memories and new experiences. I will miss this group... the laughter, the smiles, the jokes and so much more.
Enjoy the video walk through our year below!

Holy moly! Look what arrived this week in our classroom! There were a lot of nervous giggles but many of the kiddos warmed up to our new class pets. If you pet them they'll even squeak at you! Be sure to check them out when you're in for Writer's Tea this Friday!!

Ka- what?? Yes, Kahoot!!!
We've been using a website called Kahoot to help us review and reinforce various concepts that we're learning in class. The kids absolutely love it when we use Kahoot as it is setup in a game-based format in which they earn points for correct answers. We've used this site to review common/proper nouns, math facts, 3D shapes, and fractions to name a few. Today we used the site to practice our math fact fluency.
